runbyu1Wasatch 11ers Complete!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 20, 2013

runbyu1

Left mid-afternoon and Ran up to the saddle from Timpooneke with Brita and then on to Bomber and North Timp. Didn't see a soul from the saddle on, and back until down in the Grand Staircase. In fact, we hardly saw anyone on the way up. It was a near perfect day (aside from a bit of wind) on the summit---warm and hardly a cloud in the sky. These were the conditions I was hoping for to finally finish my running of all the Wasatch 11,000+ foot peaks. The views of the Alpine and Cottonwood ridges to the North and the rest of the Timp ridge to the South are great. What a day!

Starting a traverse to South Timp. The rockfall was a bit off-putting, but there was good climbing to be had. I probably bushwhacked more than I had to on the approach, but there were enough game trails going up through the aspens to the ridge to the north, so it wasn't so bad. Trip report.

5/07/2011 Grunge couloir with Joe. Earlier in the season with more snow changes the dynamics of the Grunge route. Not as grungy and the runnels haven't been carved yet. But we got our share of rock blasts from the mountain god.

6/09/2010 North Timp via Grunge Couloir. Fantastic route, got through the narrows between volleys of rock fall. Went with Scott Wesemann and Dustin (Apachedino). We had a pretty easy time getting there; went up Great Western Trail, then broke off and followed a ridge up to top of Wooly Hole.

5/27/2009 Cold Fusion couloir. A very enjoyable route to one of Utah's best mountains. With Scott Wesemann and Sean Peckham.

Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2010
Starting from the Aspen Grove trailhead, I hiked up the Timp Glacier to the South summit. From there, I traversed over Timpanogos, Bomber Peak, and North Timpanogos. Car to car time was about 8 hours, 20 minutes.

Climbed via CFC with the WMC. Very good snow climb. The cornices on the summit looked very dangerous

WMC hike up Cold Fusion Couloir led by Moogie737. Beautiful day, beautiful conditions, and a great group of people. Near the summit, I commented to Moogie737 that if I stepped just a couple of inches over to my left, off of the rocks, onto some snow, that I thought I'd really be walking on air since there was a deep crack and I couldn't see the bottom. Sure enough, two seconds later it all tumbled away down a thousand feet in a very dramatic fashion.

I had attempted Grunge couloir once before, but went into the wrong couloir in my haste and got cliffed out.

This time I climbed the couloir without incident (though the brush getting into the cirque to the couloir is AWFUL and I will never go back because of it), and then traversed Bomber Peak over the saddle with Main Timpanogos. Unfortunately, just below Emerald Lake I slipped near the end of a snowfield and sprained my ankle badly. I had to walk 7 miles out on a sprained ankle and spent a couple of weeks on crutches. I managed to recover just in time to go on a succession of Tetons trips in August, but it was a rough walk out.

AjaxHikerN. Summit to S. Summit Ridge Traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 26, 2009
From the Timpooneke TH, this was a spectacular day. 300+ people had signed the main summit register that day, but I didn't see a soul off the main route & not more than 25 people had signed in at the North Timp summit all year.

Somehow I have bumbled my way into climbing all of the Wasatch 11'ers, except for North Peak just north of Nebo. Trying to get there before the snow comes...

Fantastic glissading. Not as tough as I thought. Monster cornices on top with tons of ladybugs.

Did a traverse from the normal trail up the mountain, most of the ridge has a climbers trail making it easy. Left late around 4 which put me on the summit at 7:30pm. Back to car at 10....no breaks. Now I hurt. Pics and report at http://www.willhiteweb.com/wasatch/north_timpanogos/timpanooneke_194.htm

Climbed via the Cold Fusion couloir with Matt Van Horn and Sean Peckham. The conditions were perfect and we had a great time. Had a niiiiice glissade, although I did have to self arrest once to keep from getting dumped onto a steep snow slope full of rocks. The views were fantastic. What a perfect day.

6/9/10- Via The Grunge Couloir with Apachedino and Matt Van Horn. This might be the best snow climb in the wasatch. (see trip report)
Also there is a video of our climb here:

Traversed Timp Oct 26, 2012 from Aspen Grove up to South Summit, over to main summit, on to Bomber and N. Timp and down the Cold Fusion Coulior. Took 12 hours 15 minutes.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

April 21, 2012 - Fifth year in a row. This year climbed via the Cold Fusion Coulior. The snow was soft, and there was a lot of natural slide activity from the warm day before. We started at 2:30 am, and reached the base of the coulior by 5:28 am (slow). The coulior which in the past has taken as little as 2 hours to climb, took more than 3 hours, and then 15 minutes to the true peak from the false one. Nice Sunny day. It took under 2 hours to descend the coulior, and we were back to the car by 1:30 pm.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
May 16, 2011 - Fourth year in a row, and second year in a row up the Grunge Coulior.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
June 15, 2010 - Third year in a row, so this time I used a different route, The Grunge Couloir. Great route, but be mindfull of falling rocks.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

May 9, 2009: Climbed via the Cold Fusion Couloir as part of a group of eight from the Wasatch Mountain Club. Made much better time than last year. Round trip was just over 8 hours.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

May 31, 2008 : Sean Peckham and I reached the base of the cold fusion couloir before sunrise at 5:30 am, and had nice hard snow, and clear weather, all the way to the peaks. Amazing views from the peaks!

First time, May 31, 2008 with vanman798. Tough route, not just because of the 5-mile approach! Especially with such an early start that I didn't sleep a wink the night before, and carrying the extra weight of skis for the descent, which was worth the effort. We had perfect snow conditions: hard on the way up, and for the descent, a bit choppy but very edgeable at the top, creamy corn in the middle, and near-slush only at the very bottom. The snow was patchy near the top of the couloir so I had to downclimb a bit before putting on skis, but my first several turns were in very narrow bands of 45ยบ snow between bare talus. North Timp is a beautiful and awesome mountain; I loved the summit, and this route deserves its status as the trendy thing to do this spring. I had a great time.

Second time, May 27, 2009 with Scott Wesemann and Matt Van Horn. More filled-in in the couloir this time, but less snowy on the summit ridge. Got a later start this time and made better time in total. The skiing was even more perfect this time, started higher, dodged fewer rocks, and had really good corn the whole way.
